‌We have been welcoming students from Indonesia for many years and are delighted that you are thinking of following in their footsteps. Our first Indonesian student was welcomed in 1951, and we continue to host students from Indonesia year after year.  The university has an Indonesian Student Society and there are currently over 80 students from Indonesia studying at Glasgow.

Glasgow is a multi-cultural city with a large Muslim population. The city is home to twelve mosques and a wide range of Halal butchers and shops. The University has its own Muslim Students Association and student accommodation. Single-gender occupancy is available although we encourage early application for accommodation of this nature to avoid disappointment.

The University of Glasgow is proud to announce that were successful in the Indonesian International Student Mobility Awards (iisma) bid under the Kampus Merdeka Indonesia Jaya. The scheme is centrally managed by Directorate General of Higher Education(DGHE), Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) and is open for undergraduate students from all Indonesian higher education institutions under DGHE. Further information on the application can be found here.

Meet Us

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
